We practice the Gonstead chiropractic approach as we find it very specific, biomechanically sound and effective.

As a Gonstead Chiropractor, we conduct a thorough examination analysis using a systematic approach.


We will take a thorough history of your presenting complaint and include your overall health and medical history. This will assist in determining f you are likely to benefit from Chiropractic care.


Visualisation and assessment of your posture and balance within the body provides useful information.


In the Gonstead System we utilise a “skin temperature differential instrument (colloquially referred to as a “Nervoscope”). This detects subtle variances in skin temperature related to localised blood flow. Another useful tool in the analysis.

Static Palpation

Palpation for the presence of swelling (or oedema), tenderness and changes in texture or tightness in the muscles and other tissues.

Motion Palpation

Palpation of the spine and other tissues to discern abnormal movement patterns.

X-Ray Analysis

When clinically indicated, digital radiographs (X-Ray images) may be useful to help exclude underlying skeletal pathology or fractures and assess degenerative changes. They may provide useful biomechanical information regarding spinal imbalance and adaptive or compensatory mechanisms within the spine and other skeletal structures. This can help with more specific, gentle, and accurate adjustments (manual care).
